New exercise routine


Saturday, July 19, 2014

Well, after my last swimming experience, I was hoarse for 5 days. That's the same length of time I was hoarse after the original throat surgery. I will give it another month or two before I go back into that chlorine filled room at the gym.

Possibilities for return to the pool:
1) just sit on the bench for 15 minutes and see if breathing the air does any damage
2) water walking for 15-30 minutes
3) water aerobics class (an entire hour)

My problem is I don't know which caused my hoarseness, the increased force of breathing across my vocal cords or just the chlorine itself.

Actions before I can get in the pool again:
At least 10 minutes of activity each day, hopefully more on my days off.

I'm not a sedentary person. I'm on my feet 12 hours at work and spend time cleaning , working around the house on my days off. I sit to eat . I sit to chart at work. But my activities don't get my heart rate up, so this 10 minutes is better than nothing.

I'm on streak day 3.
